Newborns

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY in Nottinghamshire

I enjoy all the excitement of a tiny new member of the family. I have a passion to capture this very special time of life very creatively.

For the best results from your newborn photo shoot, it's best to have your little one photographed within 14 days after giving birth.

After that time babies start to lose their newborn curl and tend not to be so sleepy which I need them to be,

My newborn photographs are taken at comfort of your own home. There’s no need to travel as I’ll come to you with all equipment.

I always take my time with newborns, being gentle and relaxed. I never force little ones into a pose, The most important for me is to keep them safe. No portrait is worth putting a baby at risk of getting hurt. I've had more than 140 newborns in my hands so far, you can be sure I'm the one who know the job. 

Newborn sessions can typically take 2-3 hours to complete, enabling plenty of time for feeding, changing and cuddles. Babies are best photographed on a nice full tummy, so shortly before I am set to arrive please feed your baby. And if you can - try to keep your little one awake for 1-2 hours prior to starting the shoot. 

 

I've got a fabulous selection of props: handmade headbands, hats, rompers, blankets, baskets etc. If you'd like me to use specific props for example in your favourite colours - please contact me at least one day before the shoot, so I'll have time to pack them to my car.

Please note - results may vary depends on lighting conditions at your house and space you provide for my equipment. But I've got experience working in so many different locations, so you don't have to be worry that your house is too small. I took my newborn photos in the living rooms, conservatories, bedrooms, kitchens and even once in bathroom :). Only what I ask for is a little space just next to the window - as I mainly use natural light. And please remember: put the heating on! To keep baby comfortable with no clothing on, it is important that room has at least 28 C.

To book your session - please contact me as soon as possible when your tiny bundle of joy is with you, and we'll arrange convenient date for the shoot. Typically I start the sessions at 10-11 am, because at this time most babies sleep more soundly. 

I'm looking forward to be your newborn photographer!
